15-16 January 2022, Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre
The South East of England has become the most popular choice for British homeowners with six out of 10 aspiring to live in villages across the region, according to a recent article by Mortgage Introducer which says prices for homes in the South East jumped by 9.6 per cent during the pandemic.
Such is the interest in self-build and renovation, more than 130 exhibitors showcasing thousands of products have signed up to take part in the South East Homebuilding & Renovating Show between 15-16 January 2022 at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre.
There will be free daily seminars and masterclasses covering kitchens; bathrooms; doors and windows; extensions and conversions; eco and heating; architecture; design; financial services; planning permissions and much more.
A key area at the show will be The Advice Centre, sponsored by Internorm, where homeowners can discuss their project ideas with industry leaders.
Visitors keen to find out more about the design, planning and construction process are recommended to book an Ask the Architect consultation, where chartered specialists can assist with consumers’ specific issues.
Members of the Federation of Master Builders will guide people booking an Ask the Builder session on hiring accredited, highly skilled construction workers.
For specialist advice and tips on all aspects associated with self-build and renovation, 15-minute Ask the Expert consultations are available through interactive sessions to help assist visitors in achieving and realising their property ambitions.
On hand at this year’s show will be ‘DIY SOS’ and ‘60 Minute Makeover’ interior designer Julia Kendell. With over 30 years’ experience as an interior design professional, property renovator and kitchen specialist, Julia will be imparting her knowledge on interior transformations that uplift and energise to have a positive impact on wellbeing. She will be highlighting her brand new ‘Virtual Room Design Service’ that provides online interior expertise to those needing help with creating well-functioning one-off rooms.
